It really takes away from the story. I was honestly hoping for another incredible seamless 'what if' take on one of my favorite Disney stories, but to read a story of somebody else telling the story is both weird and also makes it difficult to become immersed in the story itself and its world.
That's the only thing keeping me from giving the book the five stars it deserves. It's easy to skip over those chapters, however, and you don't miss any important bits of plot, so it still gets at least four stars.
The framing device of a real world brother telling this story to his Rapunzel obsessed sister in the hospital was off putting. Why make this story obviously fiction? Why not just let us live in that world? But I admit I eventually warmed to it. I felt kinship with the sister as she asked her brother where certain characters were, and warned him not to screw up the story.
I was nervous about the new girl character they introduced and worried that it was going to tip into all female friendship and sideline Flynn. That thankfully did not happen. There was still romance.
Honestly I ended up liking the book. It didn't completely blow me away, but most importantly, it didn't disappoint me. Come on guys, it's fanfic. I've read both better and worse Tangled fanfic before. This is somwhere in the middle. But if you like Tangled, you'll probably like it.
We follow the story of Rapunzel; however, instead of her healing golden hair, she has silvery hair with the power of death... or so she's been told. Gothel still plays a prominent role of a liar in this book, and it's refreshing that her conniving, manipulative ways did not change in the story. Furthermore, we get to meet Gina and her witty banter with Flynn Rider. All of the elements of the original "Tangled" storyline are present with new characters, such as Countess Bathory, Treggsby, and the men from the Snuggly Duckling.
The story moves quickly, as there is a lot of action within the book. There are enough twists and turns to differentiate from the original story and maintain the reader's attention. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
